I'm painting pictures with poetry
My purpose asked me to mold it
So that when tomorrow comes
All of its children may hold it
I'm sharing with the world
The polished pieces of my work
Ensuring that I plant seed everywhere I find dirt
I'm fighting disease with my poetry
I'm studying words
Researching ways to make my phrases
Help ease the world's hurt
Speaking without my mouth
To egos instead of ears
Measuring my success
By inspiration instead of years
I'm drawing on experience
Using wisdom as a brush
As I create a masterpiece that will hang in all of us
Centered on collective conscious
My purpose is very clear
To employ allegory
To help discouraged dreams live
